Give Peace a Chants

Give Peace a Chants

We know that meditation in itself relieves stress, which is a contributing factor to many illnesses. Using this knowledge with intention takes meditation to the next level, where you use your focus and attention to support your body’s infinite healing resources.

You will discover your own methods of chanting. Experiment with what is comfortable for you. It’s not the quality of your voice, but the quality of the words and your attention them to that count.

You may want to do this meditation in a private place, such as the shower, a car, or a closet (only kidding).

Directions
For one minute, verbally repeat or sing a phrase that resonates with calm and tranquility for you. Here are some suggestions:

“Blue water, white sand, and me. Blue water, white sand, and me.”
“All is well … All is well … All is well …”
“My peace prevail on earth. May peace prevail on earth.”

Before long, you’ll be chanting in the rain (or snow), just chanting in the rain (or snow), and maybe even breaking into song.

I like the chant "Om shanti, shanti, shanti". Shanti is the Sanskrit term for peace. Repeating three times for peace of body, mind and spirit, or for universe, earth & self.

This is sooooooo true! Go to sat chit ananda and look for the video about 10 from the top. I used to sing every Tuesday; now, I find myself chanting it in private places. The shower, in the car and when I am alone.
I think it's You Tube? I hope you find it.
